The foot-stomping single “Misery Whip” by the Canadian blues rock band El Niven And The Alibi truly takes you for a walk on the dark side. Featuring gritty guitar riffs and a massive sound from the band, singer Elliot Niven’s raw vocals cut through the mix with bluesy soul, swagger and attitude. Lyrically alluding to toxic relationships, “Misery Whip” gets its title from the famous two-man saw used by lumberjacks?

This Edmonton-based group developed its sound and love for the “dangerous side” of rock. Honing their sound over the years, they focused on the perfect fusion of blues, rock, and grunge, also known as Western Rock.
